The use of 3D applications within GIS continues to increase and evolve. Recent technology advancements and friendlier data formats has enabled organizations of all sizes to use 3D for a variety of applications including hazard mapping, smart planning, sustainable growth, and insurance purposes. Once viewed as an advanced application only meant for savvy GIS professionals, current software makes 3D accessible to all GIS users.

  • Using 3D GIS to Build and Disseminate Flood-Related Scenario Visualizations
             Greg Dobson
    Visualizing environments in 3D can greatly aid community decision making when addressing flood scenarios, including flash flooding, sea-level rise, and storm surge. This presentation will look at some of the latest technologies for building, interacting with, and deploying 3D visualizations.

  • Visualizing Tomorrow, How 3D GIS Supports Urban Master Planning
             Eric Brady

  • The City of Raleigh - Transformation to a 3D Smart City
             Jim Alberque, Geoff Taylor
    This presentation will focus how the City of Raleigh/Esri has transformed their 2D GIS Data into a Smart 3D City Model and how it will be used to support the city and engage citizens. We will show how the use of 3D has moved beyond its earlier time-consuming and costly manual modeling routine into a practical, semi-automated modeling process. You will also be exposed to the concept of Procedural rules has enable the rapid modeling of smart 3D city models from data attributes. We will take a close look into the data requirements for creating a smart 3D city model, extracting features from existing LiDAR and imagery if data does not exist, the different levels of details of the 3D city model and benefits of each, WebGL, and potential use cases for 3D.
